Mozilla 1.0 Released
Jun 5, 2002, 17 :30 UTC (7 Talkback[s]) (2094 reads) 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--June 5, 2002--Mozilla.org, the organization 
that coordinates Mozilla open-source development and provides 
services to assist the Mozilla community, today announced the release 
of Mozilla 1.0, the first major-version public release of the Mozilla 
software. A full-fledged browser suite based on the latest Internet 
standards as well as a cross-platform toolkit, Mozilla 1.0 is 
targeted at the developer community and enables the creation of 
Internet-based applications. Mozilla 1.0 was developed in an open 
source environment and built by harnessing the creative power of 
thousands of programmers and tens of thousands of testers on the 
Internet, incorporating their best enhancements. 

Built on the Gecko layout engine, Mozilla 1.0 is cross-platform and 
integrates a core set of applications that allow users to access the 
capabilities of the Web, including a web browser, an email reader and 
a chat client. Gecko is the core browser component in Mozilla 1.0 and 
was developed as part of the mozilla.org open source project; it is 
freely available for inclusion in third party products. Mozilla 1.0 
uses Gecko to deliver the most advanced, standards-compliant browser 
across platforms; the ease of embedding Gecko brings the same power 
to desktop applications as well as devices. The release of Mozilla 
1.0 signals a new level of compatibility and maturity of the 
programming interfaces provided by Gecko, and paves the way for the 
arrival of new Gecko-based products. 

In addition, Mozilla 1.0 is a cross-platform toolkit for developing 
Internet-based applications. By offering a set of components that can 
be used in a wide range of applications, are all open source, free of 
charge and have been tested through their use in Mozilla 1.0's end-
user applications, Mozilla 1.0 enables developers to build 
applications for a cross-platform, network-centric world. Mozilla 1.0 
also expands the range of developers who can write complex 
applications since Mozilla's architecture enables the creation of 
such complex applications by building upon the same technologies that 
are used to create web content. For instance, Gecko displays web 
content on the user's screen and parses and renders HTML and XML 
content, and this ability to understand and display HTML and XML is 
valuable in numerous applications beyond the browser. In addition, 
Mozilla's cross-platform component implementation, Mozilla's cross-
platform XML-based user-interface development technology ("XUL"), its 
networking libraries, its ECMAScript (JavaScript) implementation, and 
its security and encryption libraries are all part of the Mozilla 1.0 
cross-platform toolkit for application development. 

"Mozilla.org is excited about releasing the Mozilla 1.0 code and 
development tools to the open source community, and providing 
developers with the resources they need to freely create and view the 
presentation of their content and data on the Web," said Mitchell 
Baker, Chief Lizard Wrangler at mozilla.org. "As the browser has 
become the main interface between users and the Web over the past 
several years, the goal of the Mozilla project is to innovate and 
enable the creation of standards-compliant technology to keep content 
on the Web open. As more and more programmers and companies are 
embracing Mozilla as a strategic technology, Mozilla 1.0 signals the 
advent of even further dissemination and adoption of open source and 
standards-based software across the Web." 

"The Mozilla project has quietly become a key building block in the 
open source infrastructure. In addition to the open source Mozilla 
browser and the Netscape 7.0 browser, the Mozilla toolkit has been 
used to create additional browsers for platforms such as Linux and 
Mac OS X, instant messaging clients such as Chatzilla and the cross-
platform Jabber client, and software development tools such as 
ActiveState's Komodo IDE," said Tim O'Reilly, Founder and CEO, 
O'Reilly & Associates, Inc. "Moreover, there are over 70 distinct 
projects hosted at mozdev.org, the community site for Mozilla 
derivatives. This industry-wide momentum ought to be considered a 
major success in anyone's book." 

"The release of Mozilla 1.0 represents a huge milestone for the free 
software community. From browser technology to software development 
tools, the Mozilla project has had an enormous impact on open source 
development," said Nat Friedman, Vice President of Product 
Development at Ximian Inc. "Most importantly, Mozilla 1.0 is a key 
part of an industrial-strength open source desktop." 

"The launch of Mozilla 1.0 is a key event for embedders across the 
Web, it gives us a stable platform to develop upon in addition to 
guaranteed APIs to build applications with," added Philip Langdale, 
Mozilla interfacing code maintainer for the Galeon web browser 
project. "We would like to congratulate the entire mozilla.org team 
for producing such an outstanding product, as key open source 
projects including Galeon would not have reached this level of 
quality or maturity without their hard work." 

By virtue of embedding Gecko, Mozilla 1.0 and products based on 
Mozilla code support more web standards, more deeply, more 
consistently across more platforms than any others. Mozilla 1.0 
features full support for HTML 4.0, XML 1.0, Resource Description 
Framework (RDF), Cascading Style Sheets level 1 (CSS1), and the W3C 
Document Object Model level 1 (DOM1). Mozilla 1.0 also has the 
industry's best support for Cascading Style Sheets Level 2 (CSS2), 
the Document Object Model Level 2 (DOM2), and XHTML. Standards 
support also includes XML data exchange and manipulation of XML 
documents with SOAP 1.1, XSLT, XPath 1.0, and FIXptr, as well as 
support for display of mathematical equations using MathML. Finally, 
it features a solid foundation of support for data transport 
protocols (HTTP, FTP, and SSL/TLS), 
multilingual character data (Unicode), graphics (GIF, JPEG, PNG and 
MNG) and the latest version of the world's most popular scripting 
language, JavaScript 1.5. 

Further, Mozilla has been designed for easy localization into 
languages other than English, and localized versions of Mozilla 1.0 
will be available in the following languages (with more to follow): 
Asturian, Chinese, Dutch, Estonian, Galician, German, Georgian, 
Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Malay, Polish, Slovak, Sorbian 
and Ukrainian. (For further details, please visit
